Diaphragmatic breathing is a singers best friend. Diaphragmatic breathing, if done right, is your key to all the shades of vocal ability: power, delicacy, sustaining long notes, easy high notes and much more. Diaphragmatic breathing begins with your inhale.
If you take singing lessons, you know there are different theories about how to inhale. Through the nose, through the mouth and the nose, through just the mouth, press the ribcage out, press the belly out and on and on and on!
In my contemporary vocal method, Sing Like You Speak, the rule for any point of technique is ASAP or as simple as possible. Your inhale should open the instrument from top to bottom – quite literally.
Take a look at this video series from my SingLikeYouSpeak YouTube channel for lots more information about and demonstration of a simple inhale. Enjoy!
